Air Duct & Dryer Vent Cleaning

Calhoun County AIR Duct and Dryer Vent Cleaning

Have you ever cleaned out your air ducts or dryer vents? If the answer is no, you’re not alone! Most homeowners ignore air duct and dryer vent cleaning, but did you know the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) recommends homeowners clean their air ducts every three to five years? Luckily, in addition to top-quality carpet, tile, and rug cleaning services, Klean-Co offers cleaning services in areas that often go unnoticed. We provide quality AC, duct, and dryer vent cleaning in Alabama! 

    Why Have Your Ducts Cleaned?

    The NADCA estimates that an average five-room home can collect up to 40 pounds of dust, allergens, and dirt in the air ducts annually. While it is true that there are no concrete studies on air duct cleaning and air quality, imagine how that dust might impact your air quality and your health!

    While studies are inconclusive, it never hurts to have a quality clean done on your vents, as cleaning them might help with the following problems: 

    • Dirty vents or supply covers
    • Increased allergies or problems breathing.
    • Increased energy bills, even though your usage has not increased.
    • Recent construction or remodeling
    • Excessive dust around your home, i.e., spring season when extra pollen is in the air

    When Should You Clean Your Ducts?

    We believe in an honest assessment and providing unbiased information to our clients. In the spirit of honesty, there is not a lot of factual knowledge concerning the benefits and problems of air duct cleaning. In addition, conditions in every home are different, making it challenging to make a general statement about a timeline for air duct cleaning in your home.

    According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), you should consider having your air ducts cleaned if any of the following applies:

    • You see large amounts of visible mold growth inside the vent. Because many sections of your heating and cooling system are not accessible for a visual inspection, it helps to have a trusted professional like Klean-Co take a look for you. In addition, sometimes, a substance looks like mold spores, but it might not be. 
    • If the insulation surrounding your air ducts becomes wet or moldy (due to water damage from a leak, flood, or storm)
    • Ducts become infested with rodents or insects leaving feces.
    • Ducts become clogged with excessive amounts of dust where you visually see dust coming into your home.


    Why Clean Your Dryer Vent?

    Well, the short answer is it might prevent a house fire. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) recommends having a trusted professional clean your dryer vent annually in order to prevent a potentially deadly house fire. Prevention is not only better than repair but also better than potential despair. Dryer vent fires account for thousands of house fires in Alabama every year. Dryer vent cleaning services by trusted experts help mitigate that risk.


    What is Duct Cleaning?

    Duct cleaning involves a professional inspecting the air ducts to see the amount of build-up within the vents. This initial assessment helps us analyze how much dust and build-up you have. Next, we use professional grade, heavy-duty, filtered vacuums. During this step, it is essential to create negative air pressure in the air ducts to ensure dust, dirt, and other debris do not spread around the house. After the vacuum system goes, the technician will start agitating the ductwork walls. Agitating the walls encourages any pollutants like duct, dirt, pollen, and bacteria from sticking to the duct walls. After the cleaning is complete, our technician will perform another inspection. The inspection ensures the ducts are thoroughly cleaned.

    How We Clean Dryer Vents

    Dryer vent cleaning involves one of our knowledgeable technicians coming to inspect and assess your dryer vent system thoroughly. The inspection provides the tech with information to make a comprehensive and transparent recommendation. After the initial inspection, our technician will take back pressure and airflow measurements to continue assessing the blockage and detect any other problem sources. Next, we will remove debris and clogs, including lint, rogue socks, and nests. If you have a larger-sized dryer vent line, we will clean your booster fan and the rest of your system. Finally, we will complete a complete lint screen cleaning. The cleaning helps increase airflow and efficiency while reducing fire hazards. While we clean, we sanitize your vent lines to remove harmful bacteria, viruses, and fungi.
